Bike Dorks Meet Book Dorks

Some of you already know this, but I sometimes fancy myself a writer. That’s why I completely dig what Ride For Reading is doing. My thinking is, this program exposes kids to books and bikes. If that ain’t perfect, I don’t know what is.

Anyway, Brittany over at Colorado Women’s Cycling Project (AKA Naked Women’s Racing) did a delivery here in Denver last week, and it looks like it was a pretty killer event. These ladies may turn heads, but don’t be fooled: they’re full-on badass through and through.

I highly recommend getting involved in Ride For Reading, even if you illiterate bastards haven’t read a book yourself since you saw Spot run. These kids deserve it, and we’re just the people to bring them the books they need.

Some people have dreams about showing up to school in their underwear. Some of us actually show up in tights.

  1. D2 speak truth. A coupla weeks ago I volunteered at a Ride for Reading event and it was a fuggin blast. I totally DID feel like a Star of Rock for just riding my bike. Verrrry cool.

  2. I also did that delivery with Bacardi and it was so kick-ass
    Everybody needs to do at least one of these in their town, wherever you may be in the world.

  3. “You’ll never get this much love while you’re wearing Lycra.”

    Truth.

    Too bad you can’t do both at the same time, read and ride. *Then* we will have figured out everything. Guess it makes sense that you shouldn’t be able to perform those two pleasures simultaneously. They’re too good.

  5. Very cool. An added benefit is the kids’ parents might be a little more forgiving next time they pass a cyclist.
